Considered by whom? Members of the party which promotes the idea that minorities are inferior and need government intervention in order to be successful and is still trying to "fundamentally change" America into something resembling a third world hellhole? Whoop de doo.

Anyone with an IQ higher than that of guacamole knows that Trump said nothing racist. Offensive? Yep, it was sure was, but no more so than the crap that has been spewing from the mouths of the "squad" for several months and, in some cases, years. He damn sure managed to get a rise out of the anti-American crowd.

Totally agree. Nothing he said was racist. It was all STUPID. So I guess just another day at the office.

There was zero wrong with what he said.

Oh, and about those illegals driving uninsured, watch the TV program LIVE PD. The vast majority of non licensed, non insured drivers they stop are lily white.
tariffs help and are needed

if you buy American..you wont pay


if you want china junk..be prepared to pay



an import tariff is a good thing

how about this question


why is Apple (an American company) manufacturing all its products in china, and not the Silicon Valley???? why should apple be allowed to import its foreign made products into the USA for free??? why is Apple screwing Americans, selling phones at $700+ a pop, while they are making them for 80 cents by paying slave wages to Chinese and not American wages to Americans??






I, and most educated Americans, want the iPhone/ipad made in America,... Apple is an American company, it should be making its product here, using an American workforce, made by Americans, for Americans @ American wages


that is the point of these tariffs, to reverse the outsourcing from the globalist liberal policies of "freetrade"


the key to these tariffs, not the country of origin, but that American companies have outsourced our labor force


why should GE (an American company HQ'd in CT) make all its alarm clocks etc in Mexico and Malaysia???
think about it
median USA hourly wage is 23-25/hr
median Mexico wage 160/week

and you wonder why GE makes all its alarm clocks in Mexico.... and PAYS ZERO to import them to the USA... do you think that is really fair??




why should GM (an American company HQ'd in Detroit, MI) make all its vehicles in Mexico???
think about it
GM assembly plant average hourly wage USA hourly wage is 45/hr
median Mexico wage 160/week

and you wonder why GM moved its assembly plants to Mexico.... and PAYS ZERO to import them to the USA... do you think that is really fair??




why should Apple (an American company HQ'd in Cupertino, California, ) make all its iphines, ipads, etc in china
think about it
median USA hourly wage is 23-25/hr
median china wage 228/week

and you wonder why Apple makes all its electronics in China and not the Silicon Valley.... and PAYS ZERO to import them to the USA... do you think that is really fair??




trump is trying to fix the screwup of the globalist liberals

To be globally competitive? The United States is end all/be of places to sell. Slapping on tariffs to products made elsewhere, the tariff will just be passed on to the American consumer. Slapping tariffs on raw materials makes our companies less competitive.

Eventually you will likely get companies that split their identity, a global version that doesn't sell to the US, and a US version that will only sell in the US since they won't be competitive globally.

At the rate of automation, do people believe tons of jobs will come back? Factories might, but it will be run by few workers.

I am independent. I don't think it makes them racists but it certainly implies that their priorities is messed up. It shows that their loyalties are with party not country.

Trump has a history of racism long before he was president. But he wasn't the only racist in the white house and won't be the last. Some racist presidents did rise above....

Silence on the issue isn't good enough, Republican's need to send a clear message that they are not going to back him no matter what. Not taking a stand only will embolden President Trump to do even more radical things in the future. They shouldn't support him unquestionably just because he is a Republican President, this is how dictatorships are formed, no one speaking up against what's wrong. When did this country become a Them against Us Nation? (Republicans vs Democrats)
In the first place, they weren't 'racist.' Democrats and the Leftist Media over use that word, and they use it even for things that have nothing to do with race. Trump never mentioned anyone's race. But Omar has made very racist (real) comments about Jews and Israel. These are well documented.

Why did they fail to condemn Omar's racist statements, which were real?

What "radical things" has President Trump done?

Laughable that you compare President Trump to a dictator after eight years of one who was nearly a dictator, Barack Hussein Obama, with all the illegal, unconstitutional actions he took, such as implementing DACA by Executive Order after Congress failed to pass it. That's only ONE example.
